A Clean Fragrance
Notes: Amber, Iris, Ginger, Neroli, Sandalwood and Cedarwood

Perfumer: Danjela Andrier

L'Homme L'Eau opens fresh and zesty but not bright. Iris combined with Neroli creates a gorgeous white floral blend with a touch of aquatic. Overall a really good scent, prefect for casual wear, fresh, Soapy and clean.

Lite Airey Irisey
Definitely for warmer weather but not a clear 'summer scent'.
If I had to choose between this and Dior's Homme Eau I'd pick Dior. This Prada has the signature powdery aspect. If you choose this as an office scent or a more formal summer party then this would do well, not a monster that arrives before you.

Prada still doesn't disappoint
This fragrance resembles the original, with some minor differences. This fragrance seems to have added some sparkling ginger in the opening and has dialed back on the overall powdery aroma. I have seen some say that this fragrance doesn't lave the same longevity as the original, however from my journey with this fragrance I would have to disagree. I love this flanker, I love the original L'Homme, however I actually prefer the ginger and less projected powdery aroma. When i purchased this fragrance I was looking for something to replace Dior Homme Eau, I still feel neither this or the original did that, but I still added 2 great fragrances to my collection.

Safe clean everyday fragrance
A really good scent, fresh, clean and soapy, suitable for daytime use.

I feel a lot of iris, which makes it a bit sweet, but it is well balanced by the neroli which instead gives it that aura of cleanliness.

Overall it is not an ultra masculine perfume, on the contrary, it is definitely unisex and versatile, it adapts well to any context as long as it is daytime, as its simplicity and linearity does not make it sexy and inviting enough for an evening / night use.

Certainly a safe purchase for everyday use and with a really high quality / price ratio.

L'Homme in the summer leisure edition
Another comment on a fragrance that I already own many weeks and has earned a few lines. The original L'Homme I have years and this I have very very cheap shot in the offer. Otherwise, I would not have gotten the or tested, because it is supposed to fly quickly and be too close to the original. Fortunately, the moved in with me. 50ml for around 30 euros. Otherwise, you get this for around 40 euros. Even the larger sizes are affordable.

Before I come to the fragrance a few words about Prada: One of my favorite brands in the designer sector. One gets partly niche quality for far below value. The L'Homme/La Femme range, Infusion range and many more. Most have that clean classy Prada touch that the Daniela Andrier executes imemr well. Casual fans are also catered for with the Luna Rossa and Candy range. Great range for good prices.
The L'Homme series is a superstar in the fragrance community. In the "normal" life rather still unknown, because it is rather an insider tip which is still rather unknown. I was often asked about the L'Homme in my environment, because they also wanted to get this fragrance. And they have it too. A fragrance with a special aura. Who would like to have only one of this series should get the EdT. A fresh all-season fragrance with that certain something, which performs really really well. The Intense is also great, but the color of the bottle says a lot: A dark scent with lots of patchouli and some sweetness. A great choice for the evening / night, if you like to smell linear.

Now after a few words about Prada and the L'Homme range to the actual fragrance: the L'eau.Basically I love L'eau flankers as they are just very easy to wear in hot temperatures. Also this one. The original is already very good for spring and summer, but not the best choice for really hot/warm temperatures thanks to strong spiciness. Here it has been wonderfully toned down. patchouli has been toned down and lots of neroli has been added. It now just smells very summery, light and like a good mood. There is also a little sunscreen vibe to it. The DNA from the original is always present, but these little changes make a lot of difference. That fresh powder is lovely. For me with the best top note on the market, as far as fresh fragrances are concerned.
Where the EdT is fine for serious everyday wear, this L'eau is perfect for casual wear on warm days. It just has a very sensual touch to it. Also, this L'eau is the most unisex out of this range. In the statements, some find him too feminine, which I do not find at all.

Performance usually suffers from such fresh updates, of course. Also here. The EdT is Beastmode. Among the fresh fragrances a king. This is only mediocre, but absolutely sufficient for leisure. 5 hours he holds loosely through with initially very good sillage. However, you can't over-spray this fragrance either: a softly sensual scent that never becomes too much even with a few too many sprays. However, this is also due to this beautiful gentle summery DNA.
For me, all 3 are worthwhile: the EdT, this L'Eau and also the Intense. Each is a king on its field of application. The most beautiful top note has in my opinion but as I said this L'Eau. Who wants to keep his collection small and have only one: Take the EdT. That always goes and convinces with fierce performance.

In the shadow of the original!
Why is that? Because I think that this is a really excellent scent!

This one makes the noble & pleasing DNA from the original EDT perfect for spring and summer! In general, it looks a little ploddier than the "normal" L'homme and at the same time fresher, which makes it fit for the mentioned seasons. I think it smells really exciting for a summer scent - no boring citrus scent or the like. This could be due to the luxuriously plush nature, but also to the light ginger note, which is, however, very noticeable.

I was positively surprised by the performance as well as the fragrance itself: for a rather fresh scent I find it quite acceptable, at least on my skin. More precisely, this means that I can enjoy 6-7 hours of durability - the projection was also quite good and was present for 1-2 hours after application - even after that it is still clearly perceptible.

Moreover, the fragrance seems to be well received - I have received one or two compliments for this fragrance. Apart from that I would say that in warmer weather the fragrance works in principle in all situations. As a pure "office scent" it is similar to the original (sample) but really too bad, since it can do much more!
Here I would give a clear recommendation to buy - a really great, high-quality and not boringly smelling fragrance for the warmer seasons! It's a pity that it is often outshone by its noisy brothers - at least this great fragrance doesn't deserve this.

Class in a bottle!
Love at first sniff!
This is a masterpiece of a fragrance. Classy and clean all the way through. Comes off as being suitable for spring and summer but I think one can pull it off in the fall too. This would be a stable in my collection for years to come.

The younger, naughty brother of L'Homme
I am a little surprised that L'Homme Leau is given so little attention, unlike L'Homme and L'Homme Intense.
Because I find the fragrance composition quite ingenious. Take L'Homme and add ginger and a fresher note. The result is a powdery fresh fragrance with a slightly oriental scent. The whole is rounded off by a floral note.
The result is a bold but at the same time suitable for everyday use, which makes the wearer smell simply clean and noble.
The whole thing is best worn in spring/summer, while L'Homme is more suited to the autumn and winter seasons

Surprisingly a very wonderful opening. Sadly, there are some problems :(
I've not been pleased with the "l'homme" line from Prada. I feel the company is limiting the ingredients that Daniela Andrier is able to use or they are presenting her with brief's that are beneath her as a perfumer, but she still does well with what she is given/limited to. This one surprised me since I tend to dismiss anything with the "l'eau" moniker. Lovely opening, but the only thing that lasted was a disappointment.

Typical clashing-cool Prada high-tech DNA, intercepted somewhat powdery
Yes, it is this high-tech atmosphere that has characterized Prada men's fragrances, especially in recent years. You feel a bit far from the earth, more like floating around on a space station, cool and somehow technically high-gloss metallic-clean - that's how the perfumes look.

I deliberately don't use the word "synthetic", even though this fragrance has to be bursting with it in the end, but it's different in design than the usual uniform mush in the shower gel mainstream.
Prada already has its own laboratory recipes, which at least have recognition value.

Iris, of which abundant in powder, Neroli, which at least is not recognizable as naturally extracted and rather resonates underground. Above all a metallic, quite clear, but also unquestionably antseptic, seemingly unapproachable, somehow blue-grey shining veil.

Not uninteresting in its effect, although I think after 2-3 days of wearing it might be quite annoyed. The whole thing is too cyberly for that, too obviously assembled from non-lifelike aromas. Somewhat better and more original than many new releases, but nothing more.

This is in the same family as Dior Homme, smells good but extremely fem! If you like manly frags, steer clear, not a single manly note.

L'Homme L'Eau is the perfect powdery scent for summer/spring. It´s fresh (ginger), elegant, with a nice Iris and the sweetness of the amber.
